Perthshire & Angus - Historic Towns

Towns in variety - old seaports like Montrose, market towns such as Forfar, plus a line of Highland-edge resorts from Dunkeld through Pitlochry and beyond.

The inland Angus towns of Kirriemuir, Brechin and Forfar set in the farmlands of Strathmore, contrast with the coastal communities - old trading or fishing ports such as Arbroath, Montrose, and the golfing resort of Carnoustie.

Perthshire too is noted for the attractive scale of its towns - places such as Aberfeldy in its Highland setting or Blairgowrie on the banks of the River Ericht are just the right size to stroll around. Don’t miss Dunkeld, with its ruined cathedral and links to Shakespeare’s Macbeth in nearby Birnam Wood, or the ‘old spa town’ of Crieff.
